Christmas is a time for celebrating with friends and family. One of the best ways to celebrate the build-up to Christmas is through a dinner party; chattering over hearty, home-cooked meals in the comfort of your own home. That being said, planning a dinner party can be stressful. Here are some simple tips for hosting the ultimate dinner party for your friends and family.
Leaving things to the last minute at Christmas time is a recipe for disaster. There are lots of things you can do beforehand to minimise stress on the day. Buy drinks in bulk when they go on sale at the supermarket, set the dining table and create your playlist - all of these things can be done in the run-up to your night rather than trying to fit everything in on the morning of your party.
Music is great for setting the tone and creating an ambience that allows people to relax and enjoy the night. Your playlist should include a good mixture of styles for guests to enjoy, no matter what their tastes. Make sure to never have the music so loud that guests have to shout above it - it should simply be background noise.
Creating your own cocktail can be a fun way to make your night more memorable. Encourage your guests to get involved by printing out and framing the instructions on a makeshift bar area with all the supplies ready and available. Potential supplies could include a bucket of ice to cut up lemons or limes, a cocktail shaker and plenty of cocktail glasses. This is a fun activity that helps to break the ice and keep guests entertained.
Make sure to ask guests if they have any allergies or dietary requirements before you start menu planning and make sure everyone has something nice to enjoy (not just a salad) during your party.
